Centuries ago, one of Garheim’s Jarls created the Wards of Garheim. A group of highly trained and disciplined men who would never break in battle and were legendary for outmatching larger armies of Loreos and Lenfald. But when the war was over some of them became the Jarls hunters to take down outlaw irregulars. One day they went on a mission to capture a group of raiders and they never came back. No one heard from them again. Legend says it was a trap and they were ambushed by Lenfald soldiers in revenge for their losses during the war but that was just a rumor.
Assur Suitsson, one of the descendants of the famous Wards of Garheim, gained an audience with Jarl Eindrik to gain his blessing and support in naming his warband in honor of his ancestor and continuing their purpose of riding Garheim of outlaws once again. Assur’s force is small, nine men including himself, but they are all veterans of the war with the witch queen and have been quickly gaining new recruits to train.
